Projects & Teams
Enactus Eindhoven currently consists of 12 project members who work together on 2 start-ups. These social enterprises are set up around the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. It is intended that each company has at least one of these goals as a starting point. In this way we work together to create a better world for everyone.
Enactus Eindhoven currently consists of the following project teams:
We want to combat litter by motivating each other in a positive and fun way to throw away waste in the bins. To have a lasting impact, we want to make people aware of their behavior. Such that, with a long-term effect, we encourage people to reduce waste consumption and to dispose of waste properly.
BrightBin is a universal add-on for public waste bins. By means of light and sound, the interactive plate rewards the disposal of waste. BrightBin can easily be attached to the front of a trash can. The materials are chosen in such a way that BrightBin is sustainable, energy efficient and vandal-proof.
We believe that we can create a cleaner world with less waste and less litter on our streets.
Beans for Beads
We want to eliminate the microbeads entering the oceans via our own shower drains by creating a body scrub without these plastics. To make this even more sustainable - and without adding irritants - we will use waste streams such as coffee grounds as our primary ingredient. With a long-term effect on awareness, this will motivate people to think twice about what cosmetic product they buy and what environmental impact comes with it.
Beans for Beads is a body scrub made primarily out of coffee grounds, with some other ingredients added only for usability and comfort purposes. All ingredients included in our recipe are carefully researched and sourced based on their environmental impact index. The materials for the packaging of the scrub are chosen with the same care. Beans for Beads is a friendly, affordable, and sustainable brand that is an attractive alternative to current customer favorites.
We believe that we can limit plastic pollution in our oceans by starting in our own bathroom; replacing plastic-filled products with sustainable and effective alternatives will be a great first step.
